The objective of the Project is to sustain and enhance the incomes and poverty reduction in Pabna Irrigation and Rural Development Project (PIRDP) and Meghna-Dhonagoda Irrigation Project (MDIP) areas through reliable, cost-effective and sustainable riverbank erosion mitigation measures comprising adaptive riverbank protection works and a range of non-structural instruments to adapt to the morphological processes of the Jamuna and the Meghna rivers. The Project scope comprises three parts, i.e., Part A: adaptive riverbank protection works; Part B: non-structural mitigation and social development to erosion-displaced poor; and Part C: capacity development. The Project will protect 7.0 km and 4.4 km of riverbank revetment using geo-textile sand bags in PIRDP and MDIP, respectively. It will be implemented over 6-year period starting from October 2002.
